SOYSILK® Facts
What is SOYSILK® fiber?SOYSILK® brand fiber is made from the residue of soybeans from tofu manufacturing.  This process is 100-percent natural and free of any petrochemicals, making it an extremely environmentally friendly product.  Soy is a completely renewable resource – coming from the earth and being wholly biodegradable.   As early as the 1940s, textile experts dreamed of a fiber made from soy.  (In fact, Henry Ford had a suit made of soy as an early prototype.)  SOYSILK® brand fiber offers superior moisture absorption and ventilation properties along with beautiful draping, softness and warmth.
What are the benefits of SOYSILK® brand fiber and how does it differ from other fabrics?


SOYSILK® brand fiber contains natural anti-bacterial agents which can restrain the growth of certain types of bacteria and is therefore considered a very sanitary fiber
SOYSILK® brand fiber has the softness and smoothness of cashmere but isn’t hazardous to the environment
SOYSILK® brand fiber is beautiful to look at and has excellent wearability
SOYSILK® brand fiber has the same moisture absorption as cotton but with better moisture transmission, making it more comfortable and sanitary


How is SOYSILK® brand fiber manufactured?SOYSILK® brand fiber is manufactured using new, cutting edge bioengineering technologies.  It is produced by extracting proteins from the residual oils of soybean cake – a liquid “batter” is created and cooked, then the fiber is produced by wet-spinning and stabilized by acetylating, and is then cut into short staples after curling and thermoforming.
What is the washability of SOYSILK® brand fiber?SOYSILK® brand fiber can be washed in home washing machines and air dried.  It is not recommended for commercial/industrial washing machines.  In textiles, SOYSILK® fabrics are known to be wrinkle-free and have little to no shrinkage.
How does SOYSILK® brand fiber affect the environment?SOYSILK® brand fibers are part of the new class of green textiles.   Soy fibers provide the environment with a   unique “cradle-to-cradle” approach – coming from the earth and being wholly biodegradable.  SOYSILK® brand fibers contain no petroleum and all products are manufactured to be eco-friendly.  In addition, the United States is currently the largest exporter of soybeans in the world.
